ἐν Τραχῖνι. Heracles was dwelling at Tiryns when he slew Iphitus, as related in vv. 270 ff. Then, with Deianeira and his children, he removed from Tiryns to Trachis, and soon afterwards Zeus sent him forth into servitude (276).— ἀνάστατοι ( O. C.429 n.) alludes to compulsion used by Eurystheus: the word would not suit a voluntary migration. This had happened fifteen months ago.
